Abstract

The possibility of controlling the spectral position of the zero group-velocity dispersion point of a negative-index material can be exploited by varying the ratio between the electric and the magnetic plasma frequency to obtain dispersion-free propagation in spectral regions otherwise inaccessible using conventional positive-index materials. Our predictions are confirmed by pulse propagation simulations where all the orders of the complex dispersion of the material are taken into account.
